Communication is key! When using a locum company, it’s important to use your consultant as your advisor. Be clear about what you’re looking for and be realistic about the salary you will need to allocate, when recruiting a pharmacist. The market determines the salary, but this is also dependent on location and duration of the job.
The fees depend on the position and duration of the placement. For a full fee structure, please contact us on 1800 357 001 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
You will be invoiced on the day the candidate commences employment. The fee is payable 14 days after the invoice date and there is a 12 week guarantee period for permanent placements.
You pay the candidate directly. We will invoice you separately for our service.
If we have recruited a permanent pharmacist, as long as you pay your invoice within 14 days you are covered by our placement guarantee.
If you are dissatisfied when recruiting a locum pharmacist please notify us within 48 hours of commencement and we will replace the locum immediately.

Pharmacists and pharmacy staff
The greatest benefit is that you have access to a larger range of roles. Most of our clients won’t advertise their jobs through regular channels, meaning you find out about current pharmacy positions that you would have otherwise missed.
We also negotiate terms on behalf of you to ensure you’re getting the best package. Vacancies are updated daily on our website and communicated through our app and social media channels, making the search for a job much easier.

Many people are in the same position so it isn’t a problem at all. Upon request, we will keep all information confidential.
